NASA Arizona Super Touring Kicks Off 2022 at Wild Horse Pass

NASA Arizona opened the racing season at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park’s East Track, a 1.25-mile test track once heavily used by IndyCar teams for testing. Running alongside Interstate 10 in Phoenix, the 10-turn course offers some great racing opportunities and challenging braking zones. With cool Arizona-in-January temperatures, 28 super touring racers lined up on the grid for action!
In Super Touring, the top qualifiers were as follows:
ST3 Ken Orgeron 59.354
ST2 Tage Evanson 59.849

ST3 Brian Turner 1:01.659

Ramping Up: 2022 NASA Arizona Super Touring Season

We had a great season last year with more than 40 different competitors joining the fray for 17 race sessions. Eighteen of those drivers at one point or another found the top spot on the podium! We had guest races, guest classes, including Spec Corvette! Track records were reset, new racers made it through comp school and we’re looking to have an even bigger 2022 season! I’m excited to see what the races hold for us with all the racers joining old and new.
